Edges Curling Up

Recommended Posts

Posted · Edges Curling Up

I'm printing a pill shaped object (This:https://pinshape.com/items/7986-3d-printed-capsule-corp-storage-dragonball-z), and where it overhangs (which isn't too much of an overhang, as it it sphere-like on the bottom) the edges curl up and the print head hits against the curled up edges completely messing up to print to be(Image below). Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Printing with an Ultimaker 2, white PLA, 215° C , 60° C Print Bed, Fans on 100%, .1 mm layer height

Indeed try what pm_dude says or print 2 at the same time so the pla cools more before each layer. Also increasing thickness helps because it will print slower and more material will bond while going up. If everything fails use blue tape with cold bed to get better quality near the bed.
